javax.xml.rpc.server
Interface ServiceLifecycle


public interface ServiceLifecycle

The javax.xml.rpc.server.ServiceLifecycle defines a lifecycle interface for a JAX-RPC service endpoint. If the service endpoint class implements the ServiceLifeycle interface, the servlet container based JAX-RPC runtime system is required to manage the lifecycle of the corresponding service endpoint objects.

Version:
1.0

Method Summary
 void destroy()
          JAX-RPC runtime system ends the lifecycle of a service endpoint instance by invoking the destroy method.
 void init(java.lang.Object context)
          Used for initialization of a service endpoint.
 

Method Detail

init

public void init(java.lang.Object context)
          throws ServiceException
Used for initialization of a service endpoint. After a service endpoint instance (an instance of a service endpoint class) is instantiated, the JAX-RPC runtime system invokes the init method. The service endpoint class uses the init method to initialize its configuration and setup access to any external resources. The context parameter in the init method enables the endpoint instance to access the endpoint context provided by the underlying JAX-RPC runtime system.

The init method implementation should typecast the context parameter to an appropriate Java type. For service endpoints deployed on a servlet container based JAX-RPC runtime system, the context parameter is of the Java type javax.xml.rpc.server.ServletEndpointContext. The ServletEndpointContext provides an endpoint context maintained by the underlying servlet container based JAX-RPC runtime system

Parameters:
context - Endpoint context for a JAX-RPC service endpoint
Throws:
ServiceException - If any error in initialization of the service endpoint; or if any illegal context has been provided in the init method

destroy

public void destroy()
JAX-RPC runtime system ends the lifecycle of a service endpoint instance by invoking the destroy method. The service endpoint releases its resources in the implementation of the destroy method.
